For those of you that haven't realised there is a website (I've know about it for a few weeks now <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />) Here is what they say!


St Albans City's first clean sheet in the league for 23 games will be scant reward from a game they should have won. City held the honours in the first half against a sluggish looking Heybridge, Adam Parker being the closest to scoring with a 25-yard bombshell that came crashing back off the bar. At the other end George Clark had to react quickly to tip away a long range effort and in another attack an attempted clearance from a Saints defender struck the upright.


The second half was more even but goal-scoring opportunities were still few and far between. Declan Perkins nearly got on the end of a Richard Gough cross and another long-range effort by Heybridge brought out a fine save from Clark but the miss of the game was reserved for the final few minutes. A long free-kick by George Clark was headed on by Steve Watts only for Adam Parker to inexplicably shoot wide from eight yards when left with only the goalkeeper to beat.

Indeed. I didn't want to sound harsh, but if someone wants to watch the world's finest, and top skills and performances all the time, then they should get a comfy armchair and a Premiership Plus ticket (and let's face it, many have decided that's how the game should be enjoyed). If you want to enjoy the other side of the game, warts and all, and get behind your local side, accepting it won't always be pretty, but that it can still be exciting (and that's a different debate) then Clarence Park, or wherever, is for you. Personally I'm starting to find watching the same overpaid players and teams, quality though they are, on TV every weekend, in games whose results really don't interest me, increasingly tedious. I definitely found the pitched battle mascerading as a football match at Brisbane Road on Easter Monday, devoid of any close skill or finesse, and containing some of the finest examples of the 2 footed challenge I think I've seen, infinitely more enjoyable.

Hi herts blue.


Who plays at Brisbane Road?


Oh, one more small thing, HB. If you are who I think you are, you have a rudimentary knowledge of the English language and you might be able to assist me. Here is a sentence from a low-budget small readership periodical that caught my eye at the week-end and I wonder if you could explain why it isn't. A sentence, that is:


"Not sure that we'd have seen quite that reaction before Christmas."
